Lampapalooza

As if I didn't love The Nester already!! She is having a party today and we're all invited. One of my favorite things in the world are lamps. I counted and we have 16 in our house. Some are small, some are tall. Some were cheap, they all were cheap!! That's how I like to buy them, as cheap as possible. Take this light in our dining room. I just posted about it recently. It was a bargain that we purchased and packed away until it had a home in our new house.
The shades were my fave part. Love the dragonflies.
These 2 cuties were just purchased a couple of weeks ago. $5 for both with the shades!!!!! As much as I digress going to Wal-mart, sometimes it's a good thing!
All lit up.





This is one I love because A#1 made it!! When he brought it home from school I found a shade for $1 and covered it with an old Hawaiian shirt to go with his room. Love it!!
This is in A#3's room. Also a clearance item, this time from Target. The ribbons hanging from it are one's that came from gifts at her baby shower.


But this next one is my absolute favorite of all the one's in our house. I got this at our church yard sale a few years back. I paid $1 for it and it was UGLY!! Let's just say... brass! I spray painted it black and used some left over fabric from our bedroom to cover the shade. Hot glued some trim on the top and a black boa on the bottom. L.O.V.E. I.T. All hubby said when he first laid eyes on it was, "Feathers?"

I like the feathers. You should have seen my husband's face when I brought home my 1970s showpiece of a lamp. I love the idea of using the ribbons from baby presents on the lamp!

I like the dragonfly lampshades and the two tall ones you got for a bargain! Nice job!

Cute, cute, cute. I love adding trim and ribbon and feathers to my lamp shades too! Oh and $5 for both lamps???? What a steal. Sometimes Wal-Mart is a neccessary evil, right?
